i have a box of them

It’s Barbour, actually (unfortunately he’s one of my older brothers, and no one ever fucking listens to me when I tell them he’s an abuser and predator /SIGHS), and yo if you live in Alaska (especially the Kenai peninsula area) would you keep and eye out for him and Rikki?? Please, I am begging. She only recently turned fifteen and no one deserves the type of abuse Ethan is capable and willing to dish out

Call the troopers immediately if you see them, but don’t engage at all. Ethan has violent tendencies and was recently charged with domestic violence

If you don’t live in Alaska, please reblog anyway, and if you have any questions about him, hmu in my ask box

shadowned7  asked:

if kurofai actually canon or is that just something you ship?

I don’t think anything has been ‘confirmed’ for canon in regards to them, but I do think they’re as close to being canon without it being outright stated. In the recent Character Data Book, they’re relationship was described as ‘being reeeaallly good friends~ <3 ) so I think that says a lot lol

But CLAMP have a certain way of showing deep feelings between two characters and Kurogane and Fai check off all the boxes.
A) Sacrificing of blood for the other person

When Kurogane offers up his blood to have Fai turned into a vampire to save his life, and thus binding the two of them together for as long as he shall live because he would be Fai’s only food source. He can never return home either, which is one thing he wants more than anything, because Fai is running from his past and won’t settle down in one place for too long. But he would follow him to Hell and back if it meant keeping him safe.

B) Loss of limbs

Kurogane willingly cuts off his own arm to save Fai’s life because he refuses to leave him behind to die. There is no hesitation, no second thoughts, just a burning desire to save the one person he cares about more than anyone else. A man who’s goal was to be the stronger than anyone, makes this sacrifice because he finally understands what True Strength is.

C) Offering up magic

Because of the sacrifice Kurogane has made to keep him alive, Fai trades away the last of his magic to Yuuko for an artificial arm to replace the one lost. Had those earlier sacrifices not been made, he wouldn’t have traded it because his magic is what keeps him alive. But after running and hating himself, wishing he could die, he’s finally ready to live, because for the first time in his life, someone actually cared about him, someone who hasn’t lied to him, or used him for their own gain. 

Not to mention this little gem here

What Fai is wearing is a Furisode, which is worn by young, unmarried women in Japan, or in this case, worn by the male lover of a warrior (like Kurogane)

This post got long lol but yeah, even if it’s never confirmed officially as canon, I feel pretty comfortable with thinking that it is

sorry if this has been asked before, but is there a place where we can access your ever growing list of to-reads? been facing a bit of a dry spell lately and i've always enjoyed your recs. also hope you don't mind if i ask where you source original stories to read from? i ask this with the course of honour in mind- found that through your blog- but mostly i am wondering if there is a Great Repository somewhere and i am yet to discover it, or if it's just a matter of following the right people :)

honest to god, this is me just copy-pasting my BOOKS TO READ email draft into this text box. I cannot vouch for the quality of any of them because, obviously, I have not read them, but they were all added to the list because they sound up my alley, or just as reminders to myself because I’ve read other things by these authors.

(I have a lot–a LOT–more books on my to-read list which are literally ON MY SHELF and so never needed to be added to this physical list. but I am not going to list those because we will be here all day.)

most of these are recs from friends or mentioned on podcasts (I recommend galactic suburbia!) or based on good reviews I’ve stumbled across:

in terms of original stories posted for free online: I am yet to read course of honour, and the last time I read an online serial it was CAPTIVE PRINCE, ON LIVEJOURNAL, so I am not exactly sitting on a dragon-like hoard of them, alas.

NOTE FOR MY BELOVED FOLLOWERS: please, for the love of everything, do not leap in to tell me five more things that should be on this list. usually I enjoy getting recs, but I am not in the greatest space at the moment when it comes to my overachiever neuroticism and tendency to shout at myself about Things I Am Not Doing And Should Really Be Doing, so I am not in the mood to lengthen any to-do lists. thank you.

[ Still have 30+ questions in the ask box, but I have no inspiration for any of em. So I’m going to probably delete them all and re-open the ask box again in a bit. I hate to do it but… there are just some things I cannot make funny or interesting in any way haha

And I’ve been losing a lot of followers lately which is fine… unfollow who you want my pals. But, consider the ask box being open (in a bit) as a suggestion box, too. Let me know if it’s getting stale, if there are things you’d like to see more or less of, and I’ll see what I can do.

like bye i wanted witch mercy + uprising mercy SO BAD but i didn’t get them and now when i see people with those skins i think its so cool because they feel exclusive. and i got lucky with getting almost all the rooster legendary skins so when i wear them i feel cool because i think they’re exclusive.

overwatch would be boring if everyone had every single skin. cosmetics are meant to be rare, they’re meant to be things you show off. 

acting like you have ‘no choice’ but to buy lootboxes with real money is so ridiculous like absolutely no one is forcing you to buy loot boxes at all. this game is my entire life and i’ve spent a grand total of £0 on lootboxes and i never intend to buy any. i still love this fucking game and always will.

ridiculous.

Not an Update #7

Hey! It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? [Ok. It was a month, hush.] I have a couple of things to say:


First of all, where I’m at school is almost over and during the summer I travel away from home for a month… so that means I won’t have my main set-up for that entire period. Another thing is that my laptop is kind of busted, this is what caused me to do the asks traditionally last time I left. I’m going to attempt to get it fixed, but I’m not sure what will happen. We’ll figure that out when we get there.


Next up: I have a lot of asks that I have no clue how to fit into the story. I had an idea however, what if I just compiled them all onto a single canvas [or multiple] and drew them out and answered them that way? I want to clean out the ask box a bit but I don’t want to delete any of them, it just kind of seems like I’m throwing away your support to the blog by just deleting them from existence.  


Anyways, I got sidetracked and rambled a tad, tell me what you think… thank you for taking time to read this, have a nice day.

im tempted to buy and set up a breeder box for cory eggs. My corys are breeding so regularly (every 2 and a half weeks on the dot), and I know the LFS will buy them off of me. A hobby that pays for itself is kinda amazing. (def no profit from this, but breaking even is awesome).

I mean, I loved raising up these babies. Ive really started enjoying this hobby more by raising fry. Theres just something really cool about watching them go from weird wiggley orbs, to actual little fish.

And then the LFS has healthy locally bred fish that have been raised in our water. So my cories actually do really well in our hard water cause thats what they were born in.

anonymous asked:

What nickname would the turtles give their daughter out of these choices ? "Babygirl", " Munchkin" , "Beautiful" , "Princess"

Oh, so cute! I can definetly see each of them give their daughter a cute nickname if not several nicknames.


LEONARDO

Leo would be calling his daughter beautiful because she’s the most beautiful living being along with you and she’s perfect because you and him made her together. 

RAPHAEL

Raph will for sure have a little nickname for his daughter and I can see him calling her munchkin, this because of the size difference. She’s so tiny and little, while he’s a big mutant turtle. 

DONATELLO

Donnie will be calling his daugher princess. Definetly. He look at you and her as royalty where you are his queen/king and now the little baby in his arms is his precious little princess. 

MICHELANGELO

Mikey could write books of all the nicknames he has for both you and his daughter. Baby girl is one of the original nicknames he will call her, because she’s both of yours little cute baby girl. 

lil-porkcutletbowl  asked:

Hey, this isn't really ereri related but I noticed you mentioned it and I was wondering if you knew the answer. The S1 DVD box set that's been released with the three visual novels, I was going to get it, but I noticed the whole site was Japanese and I was concerned the novels were gonna be in Jap instead of English. Do you know if they are? Or if there's somewhere I can get them in English?

Hello ^^.

That boxset is a japanese release, so everything on it is in japanese, including the visual novels.

Although some japanese releases contain english subtitles sometimes, this is very rare, and in the case of SnK, they don’t have any.

So I wouldn’t really recommend you to buy it unless you know some japanese or you’re a collector, since the price is really high.

To get the show in english you could buy it from any of the companies who have acquired the home video rights, like Funimation in the US for example.

But as far as I know none of the actual english versions contain the visual novels, so I don’t think there’s any official english translation for them.

There are however, fan translations you can check, if that helps. Two of them are fully translated:

And the other two are partially translated or have summaries available:

  • Lost in the Cruel World (Mikasa): Summary - Part 1 - Part 2 (I’m not sure if this one is finished).
  • Wall Sina, Goodbye (Annie): Summary.

The explanation of why the translations were dropped can be found here. At the current time I do not know if there are others.

I hear/read people tell you that you need balance.

“Eat healthy and work hard, but eat that cupcake, too! Don’t restrict a treat once in a while! You deserve it!”

Fuck you and your cupcake

Some of us listen to that rhetoric, and have the intent of A cupcake. That single cupcake turns into a box of cookies, or something worse, all because they followed the advice of someone they admire, who told them that eating a cookie is essential, because restricting, “hurts your soul”, or some other bullshit.

Fuck you

Some of us, myself for sure, eat the whole fucking cake, because we decided to treat ourselves.

If it works for you, I’m happy. Stop telling me that I’m doing it wrong because I’m not following your advice that doesn’t work for me.

OMGOMGGG SOLANGELO AND JASON/PIPER DOUBLE DATE PLS ps ur drabbles are perfection

“I don’t understand why we had to come along,” grumbles Nico. He pulls his hood lower over his face, until only his fierce scowl is visible.

“For moral support,” Jason replies, “and backup. I heard this satyr’s accidentally hit jackpot—not just one but four demigods to shepherd. Poor guy.”

“You could just throw them a smile and say some pretty words and you’ll be back at camp with no trouble,” Nico tells Piper.

She shakes her head. “My charmspeak doesn’t work that well against younger demigods. Come on, Nico, weren’t you complaining about being all cooped up at camp? Here’s your chance to have some fun!”

“And with your boyfr—”

Jason goes down with a strangled squawk as Nico chucks his empty Happy Meals box at his head. Just in time, too, because there Will is, coming back with a strawberry sundae. He slides into the chair next to Nico.

“Here,” Will says. “You can eat first.”

“Thanks,” Nico says. He already has a scoop of ice cream in his mouth when he looks back up to find Jason and Piper beaming at him. Nico groans, tugging his hood down again. He doesn’t let go of the ice cream, though.

Will glances from Nico to their friends across the table. “Did I miss something?”

“No!” Nico says quickly. He glares. “Nothing at all, right guys?”

“Nothing,” agrees Piper. “Just thought that this trip has been very… sweet.”

Jason laughs, high fiving Piper while Nico attempts to drown himself in strawberry syrup. Will tilts his head, puzzled, but he’s wearing that sunny smile of his, and secretly, with no small amount of reluctance, Nico has to agree with Piper.

this is part of why i think it’s so important to be able to talk about orientations as a willingness as opposed to purely an innate attraction. 

Some people are attracted to people who, for whatever reason, they’d never want to be involved with, and don’t want to define themselves by their attraction to. 

So how about instead of crawling all over yourselves to force that person into your box because you were attracted to them and don’t want to have to question your orientation, 

you just say you’re only willing to be with X type of person, so you don’t have to keep questioning yourself because your crush came out as trans, or non-consensually label people via your attraction to them. 

I had two very rough groups today at work. So rough that I was almost in tears and I had to go punch a cardboard box in the basement.

I really need to learn how to more effectively communicate with groups of kids that have attention difficulties. I am great one-on-one with them but in a group I quickly get overwhelmed and frustrated, especially when a majority of the group is screaming at me, tapping my arms (which I make very clear at the beginning I do not like), beating each other with sticks, screaming more, interrupting me and their peers, tapping me more, having melt downs or whining because a classmate got to a spot first… etc.

I also had a 6th grade boy blatantly disrespect me and I think he did it because he was insecure. He wouldn’t answer anything or would make shit up when I was pointing to the answer. He refused to try. I had to get strict with him and I’m not his teacher. I’m a glorified tour guide tbh but when I’m tasked with getting these kids data and they refuse to participate (and actively distract the rest of the class) then I take it seriously.

I really need to learn how to work with kids in these settings because I know my frustrations didn’t help either group get excited about nature. That doesn’t make me a good interpreter. I can improve.

anonymous asked:

What are the correct terms we should use?

Never SSA or SGA because those have a strong background in conversion therapy.

As I get older, I actually care less and less about what terms and more and more about people leaving trans and non-binary people alone and fucking respecting them for once.

If you wanted to be like “I’m gay because I experience same sex/gender attraction” that’s absolutely amazing and fine but when cis people refuse to use I statements and force gender/sex qualifications on others that’s crossing the fucking line.

Good Morning/Afternoon!

Mun is exhausted after the concert last night, so I’ll be slow to replies and asks today. BUT I WILL GET TO THEM! Just, going to probably nap a bit. Ask box is still open though, so feel free to keep stuff coming. And if you mention me in a post or send an rp starter that’s fine! I’ll see it once I’m more awake. I have to format some replies later, anyway. Too many long rp threads making it hard to navigate my page. Anyway, hope you’re all doing fine today! Love you all and I’ll see you after my nap.

ahh thank you!!! I’m glad you liked the random collab thing hahah
and I agree??? @keilattes​ is great??? you can put any of kei’s yuuri’s on the motivational board and it’ll be 100/10. look at this masterpiece

So today started out dumb, but this afternoon was AWESOME.

I’m on the porch attempting to construct a railing for the stairs when I notice a weird noise. Like, a kind of droning or buzzing? And it’s getting loud. So I investigate. It’s coming from the neighbor’s yard. 

It is a metric fuckton of bees. I have never seen so many bees in my life. It is a fucking swarm of bees, and I have been reading about bees because I got a wild hair a few weeks back about wanting a hive of my own, but haven’t yet convinced Husbandthing, and there is suddenly a SWARMING HERD OF WILD HONEYBEES IN THE NEIGHBOR’S YARD.

I see postings on the neighborhood page all the time for feral swarm collection, but I also know the guy in the house across the alley just set up a hive. “Hey I think your hive escaped,” I text him. 

He calls me back about three minutes later. Turns out, the swarm he was supposed to get never came; the company went out of business and his order got cancelled, and he’d found out HALF AN HOUR AGO. And he says he’s got a friend who is a professional beekeeper, and he’s going to go pick her up and would it be okay if they came and got this swarm please please please?

So Bee Neighbor and Professional Beekeeper show up and immediately don bee suits. Apparently there is fierce competition for feral swarms, and the swarm in the neighbor’s tree is HUGE, and also twenty feet off the ground, and Bee Neighbor wants them very badly. 

The tree the bees are in is in a yard belonging to neither of us, so we go knock on the door, but there’s no answer. I knock on the house adjacent to it, but that guy’s not home either. Finally, I text the neighbor on the other side of me to see if he’s got contact info for the property owner, who is incredibly shy and in three years has never made eye contact. No luck. 

So…we trespass. We get my extension ladder, and Bee Neighbor climbs the tree while Professional Beekeeper stands on the ladder and walks him through the swarm collection. Turns out, you just shake the swarm into a box, and as long as the queen makes it into the box, the rest of the swarm will eventually follow. Bee Neighbor has never collected a swarm before (this is, in fact, his very first swarm of bees ever) and it takes the two of them the better part of an hour in the tree trying to shake the swarm into the box. 

Bees eventually get into the box. Bee Neighbor gets out of the tree without dying, and Professional Beekeeper examines the swarm and makes pleased noises. At this point, the box is the neighbor’s driveway, and about two thirds of the swarm is still milling around the box all confused. Since the neighbor isn’t home and we can’t contact him, he risks coming and parking right in the middle of a huge cloud of bees. Professional Beekeeper doesn’t want to move the box too far away, because we risk the milling bees losing the queen’s scent and never going into the box. An equidistant point between the current location and Bee Neighbor’s yard is the top of my recycling bin. 

So they put the box of bees on my recycling bin, and I text Husbandthing.

Now I have a box of bees that I am babysitting. They’re being all lazy and dopey and bumbling around. I think I might be in love. Bee Neighbor will pick the box up later tonight and put them in his hive, and then the bees will be MY neighbors too!!

THIS HAS BEEN THE BEST DAY EVER

Can birds do drugs?

If you mean “can birds knowingly go out and acquire illegal psychologically modifying chemicals for recreational use” I would say definitely not. However, birds can and have been observed getting totally sauced on various delicious fermented fruits.

Waxwings and robins will gorge on thawed berries until some of them are so inebriated that Environment Yukon has taken to keeping the worst off in tiny bird drunk tanks until they’re sober enough to leave. Inebriated zebra finches sing like they’re at terrible karaoke nightDrunk parrots periodically fill animal hospitals in AustraliaA flock of intoxicated starlings stopped traffic in Austria after running into numerous cars. THE LIST GOES ON.

As mentioned in the video, hilarious to hear about but in reality it is causing a major problem; these “drunk” birds have a hard time avoiding head-on collisions with buildings and other man-made paraphernalia. Moral of the story: don’t drink and fly, kids. Unless you’re a bat. Because it turns out you don’t need to pass a breathalyzer test to fly with sonar.
